Mr. Broadway (1933)

Description[from Freebase]

Mr. Broadway (1933) is a comedy film written by Abel Green and Ed Sullivan. The film was directed by Johnnie Walker (1894-1949) who was also a silent film actor and producer, and stars Sullivan along with a cast of celebrity walk-ons. The sketchy plot involves a newspaper reporter (Ed Sullivan, aka "Mr. Broadway") gathering material for his column. The plot was patterned on an similar film by columnist Walter Winchell, Broadway Through a Keyhole (1933). The Sullivan film primarily serves as a vehicle for him to escort viewers to various trendy New York nightclubs to watch celebrities. The section of the film with Parlo, Desmond, and Moore is taken from an uncompleted film by Edgar G. Ulmer, titled Love's Interlude or The Warning Shadow, and begun in 1932 at Peerless Productions.
